    Default Pixologic Release - Learning Series: Tileable Textures

    environmentFinal_2.jpg

    Pixologic has released another video in our Learning Series.

    Making tileable texture maps has been a staple of 3D artists for years. Traditional methods require 2D tricks that fake depth. Using ZBrush's unique Pixol technology you can create tileable images with exact depth information to increase your level of realism.






    In this video, I show:

    • Why tileable textures are useful
    • An example of how they are used
    • How to use the Clone brush in ZBrush
    • How to use ZBrush's canvas as a modeling tool
    • How to export the canvas as a texture, bump map and normal map
    Included with the tutorial is a free ZScript called Layer Shift that will enable you to shift all layers on your canvas half the width or heigth of your canvas.





    Free texture sources on the web:

    Ryan very nice technique on texturing the bricks. Its cool that you always have a new workflow on how to do things in zbrush. Always learning from your tutorials.

    I was wondering Ryan if you're going to be at this year Sigraph with the Pixologic team? Ill be attending this summer to Sigraph with a group from my college and would be nice to meet all of you guys and would be nice to meet some of the artist from here too(like Rick, Antropus, Glen, etc).

    Ok Ryan thx again!

    Javier.

    Awesome tut Ryan.

    One thing, in the video you mentioned a script that helps to Displace all the layers at the same time that you included with the video but the .rar file you posted only has the .mov included in it and no other files so I was just wondering if you could post that script. Thanks.

    Again, awesome tut.

    WooooooooooooW ! For a newbie like me there is just SO MUCH to take in from you're tutorials Ryan! The first time I whatch it I am just sitting glued to the screen trying to follow all the things that are happening with blistering speed, straining my ears to catch all the information you are giving at every action. I will probably spend half a day practicing this tutorial, playing the movie for half a second, tinkering with Zbrush for 2 minutes, playing another half second, tinkering, playing... and learning and having fun all of the way! These tutorials are so helpfull, not just in Zbrush, they also give you more options for you're work in other 3D-packages. In this instance, I know my textures in LW will be a lot more creative and bumpy from now on .

    Fore someone who doesn't have a artschool or 3D education, this sort of tutorials are the most important tools for advancing in a great hobby and becoming a bit more professional with every step.
    Just wanted to say this out front; again thanks a lot!

    Default question

    Sorry for my noobness but, the surface that you have the brick texture and normal map on, is it a single poly or is it all ZBrush at that stage? Meaning if I were to take that texture map and normal map into Max and apply it to a single face. Could I expect the same results as the SS that you posted? Obviously the edges of the poly would remain rigid. But, would the interior resemble what you have?

    Thanks for your patience,

    Aaron
